Take monocles and replace the usual lenses with those of sunglasses, and then you can retain the class and sophistication of wearing a monocle with the glorious ability to go out in the sun.

       I’ve been using a black marker and some magazines to visualize a world in which everyone wears a sun monocle. It is bound to be the most memorable fashion fad of the decade.

       and a pirate patch over the other eye to protect it from nasty rays.

       Or how about combining this with FarmerJohn's Brow Bills? (see link) A Sun Monocle in one eye and a Brow Bill over the other.   

       We might as well try and make the upper classes look as stupid as we possibly can.

       [lostdog] would you mind awfully if I patted you on the head?

       not at all. But you must have very long arms. Hang on - I'll open the window to make it a bit easier for you...

       I now have visions of aristocratic bicycle couriers tearing about town wearing their MonOakleys. For some reason, in the vision, their bikes have very old-fashioned bells on. It just seems to fit.

       They should be riding penny farthings with front fork suspension.
